Duis Sed Sapien
Behind a seemingly impenetrable enclosure of 15 oak trees, a peaceful pond and the flowing Vermilion River is a home like no other in South Louisiana. This property is a hidden paradise that offers the perfect blend of privacy and views, which are simply spectacular. Unbelievable, but true this home is centrally located on 2.114 acres 1 right here in Lafayette, LA.
The kitchen is centrally located in the home. Leigh, the current owner, wife and mother calls the kitchen her perch. She explains that she can be in the kitchen cooking while at the same time watching her daughter swim in the pool, see everything going on in the dining area and have a complete view of the front yard and driveway. This open kitchen is the kind a lover of cooking and entertaining dreams about. Tons of cabinet and counter space, gas cooktop, wall oven, food warmer and a raised dishwasher are just some of the amenities 2 this space has to offer.
The keeping room leads to the dining room where walls of windows allow for a panoramic view of the beautiful oak trees and pond in the front of the home. This is truly the perfect setting for any meal of the day. The custom front door is made of cherry. The door is an impressive entrance as it pivots in the center.
There is a fine line between architecture and art. This contemporary residenceâ€™s architecture by Fabian Patin finds itself comfortably in both categories. The living room floors are gorgeous bird eye maple. Beneath the floor is a hidden room that is cooled and can be used for wine, storage or just a secret space. The view of the surroundings from the ceiling to floor windows creates the feeling that the living room is floating on top the ponds surface.
The “pit,” as the current owners call it, is a cozy yet sleek place to hang out. Sunken below the living room, the “pit” backs right up to the swimming pool. The sofa was custom designed to fit this unique space. The windows in the pit are tinted. The tint is in the glass itself. The wet bar is accessible through the living room and the pool deck. It is complete with an icemaker, sink and drawers with built in bottle cubbies. 5
This home has four bedrooms in addition to the master. All of the additional bedrooms have bathrooms attached or very near and built in shelving and/or desks. All of the bedrooms get fantastic sunlight and like every other room in the house, have gorgeous views.
This house was designed as to maximize the natural views, which are visible through floor to ceiling windows encircling the home. The hallway that leads to the master suite lets in an abundance of natural light without compromising privacy.
It is hard to tell where the best views are seen in this incredible contemporary home. The master bedroom is at the top of the running. Imagine waking up every morning to the sunlight breaking through the oak trees and glistening on the river. Tranquility at its finest.
Surrounded by a 14 foot privacy fence the master bathroom feels like an in-home spa. The walls, floor and counter top are covered in sky blue custom cut marble. The bathroom offers an air-jet tub, a multi-jet shower- head, drawers with built in outlets and a spacious dressing area in the large closet.
Relaxing is not hard to do in this backyard. The salt water, gunite pool is five feet deep from front to back. Turn on the brilliant fan system that pulls cool air from underneath the home and blows it into the pool area while also circulating the air for all around comfort. Relax by the pool, enjoy the cool breeze, and listen to your favorite tunes through the BOSE waterproof speaker system. Everything needed for the perfect day of relaxing is found right here.
This bedroom could very easily qualify as another master suite or would make a fabulous guest suite. The generous size bedroom looks out to the pool deck. The attached vanity/dressing area is spacious and has a large open closet area. The adjoining bathroom is of generous size and offers an additional large walk-in closet.
This bedroom is currently being used as a gym. The current owners say that this room has a special feeling of peacefulness and positive energy. They love to spend time in this space working out, watching television and relaxing. They say it is the room with the best view. The adjoining bathroom is large. It is crisp, clean and offers two sinks, a tub and a walk in shower.
The gorgeous homes set in the back of River Ranch is the view across the river. Guests can arrive by boat and tie up at the waterside dock on the river. This property has so much to offer, including plentiful open yard. The lights in the oak trees are set on a timer. The oak trees look gorgeous during the day and absolutely stunning at night.
